Is co location or managed server hosting better for your business? That depends on your individual requirements, and this blog will look at the difference between the two and which is more suitable for different businesses.
Co location allows you to house your own servers in a data centre’s facilities, meaning you can benefit from their resilience, security and equipment such as generators and air conditioning.
Managed server hosting, on the other hand, is where the data centre owns the servers your website and data is hosted on. This means that they will take care of maintenance and updates on your behalf such as patching and performance monitoring.
